The Comedy Clubhouse's "Wishin Control" is a Critic's Pick.

The Comedy Clubhouse, that purple building on Ashland just south of North Ave, just opened with their Main Stage Theatrical, Wishin Control. It was reviewed this past weekend and got the critic's pick:

  • Great job, CPD! Now, will the judge utter the famous words that release violent offenders immediately back onto the street:

    NO PROBABLE CAUSE

    Any judge that lets violent and armed criminals back onto the street needs to be voted out of office, and/or run out of town tarred and feathered.

    If these offenders were sentenced and jailed, we would have a safer city.

    LOCK 'EM UP, JUDGES!

Where is the greenspace??

As a 22 year resident of the West Loop it has been both exciting and overwhelming to watch the neighborhood transform. Over the years there have been many discussions / groups/ and community attempts to get a new greenspace. We need to make this happen before all the available land is developed.

Chicken/Helmeted Guinea Fowl Found in East Village

Does anyone know a good home for this chicken? (I learned from Reddit today that it is a helmeted guinea foul). He (or she?) was in our backyard today after work and is now up in a tree on a side street near Ashland & Chicago. There is a live poultry shop about a block away so if I had to guess, I think he escaped. I am a vegetarian so would love if he could live out the rest of his life on a farm somewhere.

    Lester: Maine Township trustee outraged expenses cost more than aid
    A Maine Township trustee is criticizing administrative costs for a program for the poor that are more than three times the amount of aid actually provided to needy residents.

Black Cat found

This guy came to visit us again last night pretty late (On Paulina near Cortez in UK Village). Again he came right up to our open window, was very friendly and inquisitive, I think he would have walked right in if he could. He still didn't have a collar on but definitely doesn't appear to be feral. Does anyone know if he has a home - he is small, black, big yellow eyes and a bobbed tail. If he's a stray I'd be happy to take him in and to the vet but if he's someone's pet I don't want to take him awa.

  • Noble Square Girl CHI native in Noble Square

    Awe. He's cute. Take him in and if no one claims him you got a new fur baby.

  • I saw this little guy run across street on 1000 block of North Honore. The docked tail was memorable. I was in a car & stopped to backtrack but lost him. I hope you will consider keeping him (he found YOU) :)

  • M

    A vet or maybe an animal shelter might be able to scan him to see if he is microchipped, and that way find the family who lost him.

    Hopefully it is not a case where someone abandoned him because they were moving to a place that doesn't allow animals.

    Thank you for trying to help the little sweatie.
